I am trying to see if LyX foreword search (through synctex) works on my windows 10.
I have LyX 2.3.6 installed on windows 10.

I have set up LyX so that Sumatra opens when compiling pdfs.

I ticked a V in Document Settings->Formats->synchronize with output" and I have a synctex.gz file in the "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Temp\lyx_tmpdir.PgobcSaWjUZo\lyx_tmpbuf0" folder.

But when I try to do "Navigate->Foreword search", the button is gray and inactive.

Does anyone have an idea why? Have I forgotten something?

Have you tried right clicking? On my windows 10 system ( I also use Sumatra) Forward Search is the second item of the second block in the context menu. And to get back from the pdf to LyX just double click in the pdf at the appropriate place.
